This works for me. But does anyone know if it's what the Wailin' Jennys intended? Has anyone heard them introduce the song live, or have any other reference? I've read all 15 pages of comments here on RP and Googled away for a half hour and found nothing.
The song is divine.
I wondered about this too, esp. since they're Canadian and all.
Can't believe it's not at least an 8!

|I heard a live version of this performed with Calexico at the Newport Folk Festival. Absolutely stopped me in my tracks with its beauty.|

|Funny thing for me is that whenever I see the thumbnail of the High Violet album cover, I think it's a map. Of England. That's been going on since before I heard this song. Which I just bumped to 9. Love it!|

|ha, I think this is the lowest rated song I've come across on RP.|

The singing and the repetition is difficult to listen to. This is a song where I'll turn the volume down all the way and take a 5 minute break until it's over.
It's not bad but would benefit by being at least 2 minutes shorter.

Anyone ever guess that's Larry Mullen on the album cover, as a kid? Curious.
The boy on the cover is Peter Rowen (brother of Bono's friend, Guggi). He also appears on the covers of Boy, Three, The Best of 1980-1990, and Early Demos. Bono described the reasoning behind the cover: "Instead of putting tanks and guns on the cover, we've put a child's face. War can also be a mental thing, an emotional thing between loves. It doesn't have to be a physical thing."

Yes, exactly. Hopelessly dorky connotations when I hear the opening notes. Visions of psychedelic cheerleaders are dancing in my head.

|Well done, scrubbrush! We could all use a little more Lanois in our lives.|
SWEET! My first LRC!

Ha, I had a dream last night about the Bad Plus. I was telling someone 'you gotta see these guys live.'
I feel like I'm talking to myself.

|You gotta see these guys live if you can. So awesome. I could watch Dave King (drummer) do his thing all day.|

|As a newcomer to RP, it is so great to hear this in the mix. I was in high school when this came out and randomly picked up the CD at music store. It was my initiation to 'world' music. I'm glad to say I'm not listening to most of the stuff I was at 18 but this one I def. am! Also my favorite thing of PG's.|

|Like this song quite a bit with one glaring 'but' - that 'whoa-oh-oh' refrain makes it sound like she's channeling Shania Twain (song name I've mercifully blocked from memory).|
